Gastroesophageal reflux disease and laryngopharyngeal reflux – their importance in otorhinolaryngology
Aneta Krogulska, Krystyna Wąsowska-Królikowska

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) are two similar diseases, which are currently a plague. Several milion of people suffer from implications of these diseases, ranging from subtle complaints to serious diseases, such as asthma, sleep apnea, laryngeal cancer. Laryngopharyngeal reflux is a chronic, relapsing condition that results from repeated extraesophageal exposure to gastric conpents. The recent studies have shown that GERD and LPR are two unique but related disease entities, with different risk factors, symptoms, pathophysiology and responses to therapy. Further research on GERD and LPR is necessary.
